928 VIn Decode

Recommended Posts

I am looking into purchase of a Porsche 928 and trying to get value of car based on Vin. All I can find on car is following:

928 01

9288102478

So, I can't tell if its a 928 S or just 928. What is reasonable value for this type of car with Manual transmission and been sitting for nearly 20 years?? Clutch in need of repair.

928 is vehicle type

8 is the model year

1 is the code for the body and engine

02478 is serial number

Looks like a model year 1978.

As I recall 1980 was the first year for the 928 S.

Check Excellence magazine for the latest street prices on Porsches.

This vehicle could be a massive money pit. The clutch is a dual disc type which is prone to problems and very expensive but can be updated to the single disc type. The brake/clutch hydraulics will definitely need work and the fuel system is the CIS type which doesn't often survive storage with old petrol. This is not to mention all the other issues caused from long term storage such as rotten cooling system, dried engine oil seals, timing belt, damaged wiring, etc...etc...

As to value? It's very hard to say... I personally would consider this a parts car and recommend finding a good road worthy example.
